The 13-year-old actress, known as Eleven in Netflix’s “Stranger Things,” joined Emma Watson as the first two thespians to win gender-neutral awards at the event. She also joined Watson to melt hearts in these photos:
Oh, yeah. Hugh Jackman’s there, too. Almost missed ya, dude.
All the while, Brown was subtly making a statement.
As Vanity Fair pointed out, the actress donned two different political pins, a blue ribbon for the American Civil Liberties Union, and a light blue ampersand pin for Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).
Both organizations have been major players in the backlash against the current administration. Just recently, Aasif Mandvi’s “All-Star Deportation Jamboree” consisted of an evening of speaking up for human rights and raising money for the ACLU, while the 2017 GLAAD Media Awards was the platform Debra Messing chose for going off on President Donald Trump and first daughter Ivanka.
Though she didn’t initially have the pins while walking the red carpet, Brown proudly displayed both of them while accepting her award ...
And while feeling it onstage ...
And while hanging out with her “Stranger Things” co-stars ...
It’s all in a day’s work for Brown.
With Eleven fighting for human rights, we’re all in good hands.
